Hey guys, I'm running the Metro PCS Galaxy Exhibit (SGH-T599N) and I'm looking to free up some space by removing apps that come preinstalled on the phone. I want to make sure I don't make the same mistake I did with my last phone (LG Touch- LG-MS770) by uninstalling an app which then soft bricks the phone and requires an Odin flash. Can anyone help me out here? I'm looking to either freeze in TB or uninstall:

Flipboard
Google+
Google Chrome
Google Play Movies & TV
Google Play Music
Google Text-to-Speech Engine
MediaHub (Metro PCS app)
Swype
Visual Voicemail (Metro PCS app)
YouTube


Are these safe to remove? Thanks in advance.

They should all be safe to remove but I guess you'll losing swipe capability on keyboard.
Make a bkup in TB before delete.
There's a lot of other bloatware to remove as well but if you're unsure then start by freezing them.

I agree they should be safe to remove, but should be safe and are safe are two different things. As I said in the OP, I made the mistake of uninstalling an app on my LG Touch (it was the Google Play Books app) and it soft bricked my phone. It was a hassle to restore the phone then, and I'd like to avoid that mistake here if I can.
